I can tell it's a Command,CV-?? but I could'nt read the horsepower.
If you still have the model number for the tractor you might check Sears website for model and spec of this engine.Koehler uses a sticker on the blower housing to identify their engines.These get knocked off by pressure washers and get faded and hard to read.Wish they would stamp it into the cover.

Thanks for the response! It's a 25hp, and the mower was sold separately from the motor, and sold long before the motor, so not much hope for getting any info off that mower.

You really don't need the spec. number for this engine. Any local Kohler dealer who is familiar with the CV series twins can help you with parts. If you use CV25 spec. 69501 you'll get most of anything you need. There have been changes made to the series, but most dealers should be able to help you get what you need. For instance - all of the solenoid shift starters are the same. All of the head gaskets are the same, by respective horsepower. The biggest change they made to the 25HP in specific was that years ago they had nikasil plated bores, now they're cast sleeves. The carburetor will have a number on it that can be used for parts lookup. The ignition system has changed over the years (external analog/digital SAM, internal SAM, now the newest digital easily identified as the coils don't sit even close to the flywheel). The engine looks intact, so what is your concern at the moment?
